The Finest lavender coming to you from the pristine valleys of Jammu & Kashmir, to make your tisanes more fragrant & flavourful. All thanks to the 'Purple Revolution'.

If you have witnessed the 75th Republic Day Parade today on 26th January 2023 in Delhi, you would have come across CSIR, which talks about the 'Purple Revolution'. For those who may have missed the Parade, in a captivating display of innovation and agricultural promotion, the Council of Scientific and Industrial Research (CSIR) presented a tableau at the 75th Republic Day Parade in Delhi, focusing on the "Purple Revolution" to encourage the farming of lavender in the state of Jammu & Kashmir.

As the CSIR tableau made its way down Rajpath, it left a lasting impression—a vision of Jammu & Kashmir adorned with the hues and fragrance of lavender. The Purple Revolution, showcased on Republic Day 2024, holds the promise of transforming not just the agricultural landscape but also the socio-economic fabric of the region. The geographical location and climate of Kashmir make it an ideal destination for lavender farming. The cool temperatures, well-defined seasons, and ample sunlight create the perfect conditions for cultivating lavender, a plant known for its love of well-drained soil and sunlight.

The cultivation of lavender can serve as a sustainable and profitable venture, contributing to the livelihoods of communities while adding a unique crop to the region's agricultural diversity.
